      Take note of this,

      most console trays online would need minor mods, the cutout for the latch isn't deep enough and would require a Dremel or something similar to remove some of the plastic, the tray itself fits perfectly but the lid won't close because the tray covers the latching hole.

      The door pocket cups fit great!

      Yeah the center console in the teramont is different. It has the double adjustable armrests. The shift area is different as well as it has covered cupholders and storage like the 2012 passat used to have.

      Actually installed the OEM sidesteps a few weeks ago. The install was a challenge as the instructions were ikea like. Once I figured out one side the other went smoothly.

      Thanks. I paid $594 plus sales tax at Lewisville VW (local to me) since I could pick up the day I had time to install. I did see other dealers running better specials as low as $530 but I'd have to pay and wait for shipping. I just browsed the VW parts site to check different dealers.

      White on Black SEL Premium. Had to immediately upgrade wheels to 22” x 9 Mandrus Rotec’s. Also tinted front windows.

      Loving it!

      This proved to not be a great idea. The car is too small for a diffuser. Oh well!

      Not at all, depending on how much essential oil you put in.

      Does my score increase if I have a matching MK7? ;-)

      Saw these on ebay (Link: https://tinyurl.com/ybvn3q9w ) and figured why not.. 20$ . LED cup holder inserts - come on when it's dark and there's vibration. They don't fit the bottom perfectly but it doesn't make the drink/cup sit off balance. Doesn't add a lot of height, either.








      One is set to blue, other is set to rotate colours (our choice) - will probably set the rotating colour one to be orange though.

      https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071DTLC1Y

      and added a WIFI router in the armrest which is powered off the USB port there and has a built in media server so kids can watch movies on the tablets

      (note: i have no financial ties to these products or amazon)
      I bought 2 of these. I’m using them with two 7” Kindle Fire. The 7” Fire is a tad too small to use alone so I purchased a couple of silicone cases and now they fit perfectly! 7” Fires were on sale for $29 during Black Friday!
